Before blood banks! Before disposable sterile syringes! Before prepackaged single doses of medicine! Before…! A small village hospital provided tender loving care to its citizens.

Abstract:
Before the many advances in technology and medicine had led to modern day health care, a village hospital in Ballston Spa, NY, with its employees working together as family, provided medical, surgical and obstetrical care to its citizens.

A doctor made house calls, delivered babies, performed surgery and administered anesthesia. Nurses not only administered medicine and provided care to their patients and newborns but also tended to supplies and, as necessary, assisted with emergencies, deliveries and surgeries. Remaining hospital staff worked above and beyond their job descriptions.

Reviewer: Terri
I feel like I stepped back 60 years and am observing life in the past. This is my Mom's book, published at the age of 80 years old!!! I think it's going to be a hit.

Reviewer: cheryl christensen
This is a find for anyone with an interest in medical history! Told first-hand from a nurse's point of view, it really illustrates just how much the medical field has changed - socially as well as scientifically - in the last fifty years.

Reviewer: Maureen Harvey
This book takes you back into time. It is written with alot of knowledge but also a lot of love for her profession. As I read the book I could picture her going up the steps of the hospital that first day. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in nursing.
